PROCCESS OF DEFINITION OF LEARNERS STEREOTYPES TO INTELLIGENT TUTOR SYSTEM BASED ON STRUCTURAL COMMUNICATION EXERCISES

Robinson Vida Noronha, Clovis Torres Fernandes

Abstract

The subject of this paper is the forgotten instructional technique called Structural Communication and how learners stereotypes could be defined to a generic Intelligent Tutor System based on Structural Communication Exercise. This instructional technique stemmed from teacher’s practice of analysing a learner’s problem solution to an ill-structured problem. The solution described in this paper is based on some ideas of convergent and divergent cognitive learner styles. These cognitive learner styles were used to define a set of twelve basic learner stereotypes. These ideas of learners stereotypes stemmed from the observation of how learners could employ some domain’s concepts or ideas in a convergence and divergence way to solve a set of ill-structured problems. This set of learner’s stereotypes is represented by three independent dimensions or layers and define a Learner Model of a generic ITS based on Structural Exercise.
